The Eagles have been struggling in the Great Eastern-YEO's S.League all season long but gave their fans something to cheer about earlier in the week when they booked their place in the League Cup quarter-finals after beating Balestier Khalsa 3-1 at the Toa Payoh Stadium.
And at the Bedok Stadium on Thursday, they wrapped up top spot with an impressive victory over Albirex, who are currently top of the league.
Mid-season signing Stefan Milojevic put Geylang ahead in two minutes before the break with a well-taken goal, before Shah Hirul sealed all three points in the 59th minute when he grabbed a second.
Over at the Jurong West Stadium, league champions Tampines Rovers played out a 1-1 draw with Gombak United to ensure they would finish top of Group D.
Gombak went ahead in the 14th minute when French forward Julien Durand capitalised on a mistake by Stags goalkeeper Sasa Dreven to put his side ahead.
However, Tampines equalised four minutes after the hour mark when Ismail Yunos scored an own-goal after getting into a mix-up with Zaiful Nizam, although the result was still enough to see the Bulls progress to the last eight at the expense of Woodlands Wellington.
Gombak will now play Geylang in their quarter-final clash at the Bedok Stadium on Sunday, while Tampines entertain Albirex at the Clementi Stadium.
